Three men checked into a hotel room for which they paid \$30. The next day, the manager realized that the men had been overcharged. She gave the bellhop \$5 to return to the three men. On the way to their room the bellhop decided to keep \$2 for himself, and give each of the three men one dollar. The three men had now paid \$9 each, or a total of \$27. This plus the \$2 the bellhop kept makes a total of \$29. What happened to the other dollar?

Gumby,

Your adding the wrong numbers, included in the \$27 is the \$2 the bell hop kept, add the \$3 instead of adding the \$2 twice. In actuallity the customers were suppose fo have paid \$25 for the room the bellhop kept \$2 and gave back \$3 for a total of \$30. 30 - 5= 25, 25+ 2 = 27, 27+ 3= 30

Its a good thing the belhop kept some. Because if he had returned the entire \$5, the three guests would have paid a collective \$25, plust the \$0 that the bell hop kept, and we would be missing the entire \$5. How can that be good for the economy?

As a matter of fact, if the bell hop had kept the entire \$5, the guest would have paid 30, plus the \$5 the bell hop kept - now the Gross National Product would be increased by \$5. You see, more hotel employee thievery would bail this economy right out of its doldrums.

seedy thats what i figured out....are we right (they were given back 3...that would make it 28 and the 2 dollars the bellhop
kept makes 30.)
